Christmas Island National Park

Christmas Island’s beaches are simply breathtaking, with white sands flanked by rugged cliffs and forest-covered hinterland.

Many beaches offer excellent snorkelling, and you can often see turtles and red crabs during the breeding season. Sea conditions can get rough, so always take care when entering the water.

Some beaches are tricky to get to but well worth the effort (and you’ll probably have the whole place to yourself).
